Incomming power, switch loop and neutral are Comming down from the light or up for the plug in a three wire. Other than that as usual excellent drawing.

I didnt catch that in any of his posts that the power was originating at the light source

He's got two blacks a red and two whites at the switch box. Either power comes from receptacle or light in my opinion with the way it was wired. I think there's a lot of confusion with the fact he was calling the backstab connection on the switch a plug.
